10 Year Celebration!
In 2014 we celebrate 10 years as e:merge and 20 years since the youth work of Youth Base and the Vine started. We have an incredible legacy and are proud to have built on these foundations to create a dynamic and successful team of over 20 employed staff and working with over 1200 young people a year across 6 areas of the city. Over the past 12 months e:merge has made great steps in recognising its role, identity and distinctive contribution to inspiring and loving young people in Bradford. We have hundreds of life transforming stories to celebrate and many prayers of thanks for the provision, partnerships and generosity of others.
In September we are going to plant a new work in Sheffield, taking our values and core beliefs to a new city. Tim’s role for e:merge is going to change to focus on pioneering this work and also to spend more time focussing on contributing to wider issues and trends young people face nationally, whilst maintaining and contributing to our overall strategy and vision as a charity. We will be shortly recruiting for a new post in Bradford to direct and lead on the development of our existing work and to continue to move this forward. He and his family will be moving to Sheffield as part of this process.
This is a really exciting development and a clear ‘next step’ for e:merge, presenting new opportunities to have significantly more impact. We would really appreciate your thoughts and prayers for e:merge over the coming months as we step out in to this new territory!
